The emergency suspension of a GP which has prevented him from practising for more than three years has been thrown out after the NSW Court of Appeal branded it “irrational”.

Dr William Russell Pridgeon was originally suspended in October 2018 after the Australian Federal Police (AFP) arrested him for helping a mother hide her twin children from their father.
